  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 4 1/2 to 5 pounds chicken breasts with bone and skin
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, add flour, salt and black pepper. Seal and shake to blend. Add a few chicken breasts to the bag and shake until evenly coated; set aside. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add chicken, skin-side-down, cooking about 4 minutes or until skin is golden brown. Place chicken skin-side-up in a slow cooker crock. Pour wine, lemon juice, broth and capers over chicken.
  3. Cover slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 2 hours or LOW for 4 hours or until chicken is cooked through and tender. Remove chicken to a serving platter. Cover with foil to keep warm.
